Starting Lessons Can Be Overwhelming for Teens

Most parents worry…

•  Will my child feel dumb for making a mistake?

•  Will I have to fight with them at home to practice?

•  Will my child get bored and want to quit?

•  Will my child begin to hate music?

I help kids and parents avoid these things so they develop a love for music without the stress.

Your Child Deserves the Chance to Fall In Love With Music

“Piano lessons have become more factory-like & impersonal. I’m changing that, one student at a time.”

I get it. Like them, I was a beginner at one point, too. I know firsthand how it feels to struggle with what note goes to what key on the piano.

I felt hopeless and frustrated that I couldn’t get my hands to do what I wanted them to do. Overwhelmed by all the things I still had to learn, I wanted to quit so many times…

I spent the last 25 years learning how to master the piano and pulling apart my own playing so that I can explain things to your child in simple, easy-to-understand language.

During this time, I found a truly unique way to teach piano. This way of learning piano is so powerful that I’ve made it my mission to teach teens how to become the kind of piano players they want to be.

This is why I became a piano teacher.

Over the years, through my unique piano lesson format, I have taught dozens of kids how to easily play the songs they love.

Introducing: Lab Style Piano Lessons

The fast and easy way for children to learn to play the piano.

Pink and Purple Sporty Gradient Fitness YouTube Thumbnail 10

This new way of learning piano includes individualized teaching and practice in a lab setting with up to four students, with headphones at each station.

Children in each class do not have to be at the same level since the class is not taught as a group. I repeat, this class is NOT taught as a group. Each child is taught individually.

Each child receives individual attention and goes at their own pace. All music is thoroughly learned at the lesson, which makes practice at home easier! 

Because there is a heavy emphasis on sight-reading and independence, kids are able to play the music they love quicker and tend to level up in their books at a faster rate than the publisher advertises, so they’re more confident at home.

Before and After 

I asked parents what their child’s life was like before enrolling and how it’s improved after taking lessons. Wow, what a difference!

BEFORE: “My kid begged me for lessons. I was reluctant because I didn’t know how serious he was.”

AFTER: “I can’t believe he can play the songs that he does. I love seeing how excited he is each week!”

BEFORE:We have a piano at home that Emily plays around with. So I put her in lessons.”

AFTER: “Her school teacher asked her to play for the class. This was a huge source of pride for her!”

BEFORE:I wasn’t happy with Jacks’ old teacher. So I took a chance and tried lessons here.”

AFTER:Jack loves lessons so much he rushes home to practice. That says it all it’s incredible!

Frequently Asked Question

Still unsure? I’ve answered some common questions adults have below.

  • image/svg+xmlimage/svg+xml
    What if my child doesn't like the way you teach?

    If your child does not like me or the way I teach for whatever reason, there is no obligation to stay in the studio. Just give the required 2-week notice of discontinuation and you’re free to go find a teacher better suited for your child. I will take no offense!

  • image/svg+xmlimage/svg+xml
    What happens if my child needs to miss a lesson or change their lesson day?

    Lesson days can only be changed once a season. If your child needs to change their lesson day because of another activity they’re involved in, then all you have to do is give advanced notice of this request and I’ll do my best to fit you into another class on a day/time that works better. It’s best to choose a day that you can consistently make lessons, but if you need to miss the occasional lesson, you can send in a video recording of your assignments for that week and I will send you a video lesson back with critiques and new assignments so you never lose progress!

  • image/svg+xmlimage/svg+xml
    Do you teach at a studio or do you travel to my home?

    I teach all lessons at my studio in Wantagh where all students have their own quality instrument to learn on and plenty of extra cool resources available to use. I do not travel to students’ homes.

  • image/svg+xmlimage/svg+xml
    Why are you qualified to teach me piano?

    Unlike a lot of piano teachers, I didn’t teach myself and this isn’t a hobby or side job for me.

    I was trained for 16 years by many professional pianists who have degrees in music education on piano and/or piano performance and I graduated from The Crane School of Music, a renowned school that breeds some of the best music educators in the country.

    I’ve been teaching piano for 14 years and have been playing for 26. I’ve performed professionally at numerous venues and even on studio records.

    Whether you choose me or someone else, they should be professionally trained, be able to play/teach beginner-advanced, and piano should be their main instrument.

  • image/svg+xmlimage/svg+xml
    Are lessons customized for me or does everyone learn the same stuff?

    Lessons are always customized to the individual student. Not everyone learns the same or has the same interests so it’s my job to ask what your goals and interests are and help you get there as quickly as possible. Everyone learns their fundamentals from their lesson books, but your supplemental music will all be different and you get to pick what you play!

    Whether you choose me or someone else, they should be professionally trained, be able to play/teach beginner-advanced, and piano should be their main instrument.
